The Renault-Nissan Alliance and municipality of Sao Paulo announced a partnership to jointly study how electric cars can preserve the environment in the city and also improve the life quality in the city.
Sao Paulo is the first city in South America to sign this kind of agreement, confirming city’s and Renault-Nissan Alliance’s leadership in initiatives to minimize climate changes.
Unlike traditional automobiles, electric cars have no fuel tank and no tailpipe, and produce zero polluting emissions. In addition, electrical cars help minimize the noise level that is typical in urban settings, having the potential not only to improve urban mobility and energy independence, but also quality of life.
The memorandum of understanding signed today between the municipality of Sao Paulo and Renault-Nissan Alliance initiates the creation of a working group that will study the feasibility of this project, and will present a complete proposal to create and develop ways to make it real.
Following the holistic vision of zero-emission mobility established by the Renault-Nissan Alliance, the group will analyze all aspects related to the introduction of electric cars (infrastructure, resources and products) and will include other companies, governments and organizations in the discussion that can contribute to this work. Among the points to be analyzed are the implementation and the maintenance of a charging network, incentives in order to facilitate electrical cars adoption, and educational campaigns about the advantages electric cars bring to the city, its population and environment.
